[USA]: 2017 National School Climate Survey (Encuesta sobre el Ambiente Escolar)  LGBTQ+ youth, speak out about your school experiences! (Jóvenes LGBTQ+ – ¡Hable de sus experiencias en la escuela!)

The 2017 National School Climate Survey is GLSEN’s tenth national survey of lesbian, gay, bisexual+, transgender, and queer youth. It is a crucial tool in GLSEN’s mission for fighting anti-LGBTQ+ bias in K-12 schools across the nation. The information gathered from this survey will help GLSEN to inform education policymakers and the public about the right of all students to be treated with respect in their schools. 

La Nacional sobre el Ambiente Escolar 2017 es la décima encuesta de jóvenes lesbianas, homosexuales, bisexuales, transgéneros, y queer. Es fundamental a la misión de GLSEN a luchar contra los prejuicios anti-LGBTQ+ que existe en las escuelas K-12 en todo el país. La información recopilada a partir de esta encuesta ayudará a GLSEN a informar legisladores de educación y el público sobre el derecho que tienen todos los estudiantes ser tratados con respeto en las escuelas.

If you attended high school or middle school sometime during the last school year (2016-2017), identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual+, transgender, queer or questioning, and are at least 13 years old, tell us about your experiences in school. (If you did not complete the entire school year you can still participate in the survey.) The survey is completely anonymous.

Si asistió un colegio o una escuela mediana alguna vez durante el último año escolar (2016-2017), identifica como lesbiana, homosexual, bisexual+, transgénero, queer o está cuestionando su sexualidad, y tiene al menos de 13 años, cuéntanos sus experiencias en la escuela. (Si no completó todo el año escolar todavía puede participar en la encuesta.) La encuesta está completamente anónima.

The survey asks questions about your experiences in school, including hearing homophobic remarks, being harassed because of your sexual orientation and/or how you express your gender and how supportive your school is of LGBTQ+ students.

La encuesta contiene preguntas sobre sus experiencias escolares, incluyendo si ha oído comentarios homofóbicos, si ha acosado a causa de su orientación sexual y/o como expresa su género y como su escuela apoya los estudiantes LGBTQ+.

So this was never something id like to share with the world but im desperate so i dont have much choice. On saturday June 24th I decided it was time to tell my family about my being bisexual and sadly like my many other kids i was not welcomed with open arms due to their strong christian background. So i was given a little bit to collect some belongs and my dog and was told to leave and not to come back until im normal. Well it just so happen that that night i while i was driving around for an hour looking for a secluded neighbourhood to sleep i kept noticing a noise when i would brake and the next day it was predominantly worse so today (monday) i took my car to a shop and asked them to tell me what was wrong. So now not only am i homeless but i also need new brakes and full rotors for my front which will be about $750 and considering that the only form of income i can get is from driving uber right now im kind of screwed. So im trying to drive it as little as possible because im not sure if they’ll work when they get worse or not. So im making this in hopes that i can get some help to pay for this and then have some money for food and a small storage unit to put my stuff while i go work for uber because as of right now i only have $52 in my bank. Please i promise that any little bit helps. Thank you and God bless.

Online Discussion – No Homo No Hetero: Being Black, Bisexual, & Male in America

When seeking answers to questions regarding healthy identity development and overcoming multiple, intersecting oppressions, Black Bisexual Men have Very Few options.

Join us online on Saturday June 24th 2017 from 11 AM to 1 PM (NYC time) 

explore the impact and challenges of this particular work by discussing identity, race, biphobia, manhood and the intersecting oppression of being Black and Fluid with a panel of MenKind organizers, members, supporters and allies.

We will discuss the ever evolving nuances of the Black male bisexual experience: identity, racism, biphobia and media representation; manhood, masculinity, myths, HIV and the overall health, well being and liberation of Black bisexual men.

  3. and is interested in sharing their experiences

Follow That Blog: Bisexual Books

BISEXUALS DO READ: Welcome to Bisexual Books. Here you’ll find views and reviews on books from multiple genres and for all ages from the bisexual perspective. Be warned this site contains spoilers and reviews of erotica and other sexual material.

WHY BISEXUAL BOOKS? Because literature is an integral part of community, and Because it is incredibly important for bisexual people to see bisexuals represented in the media around them, and yet Because books about bisexuals are underrepresented in mainstream as well as queer review sources,
Bisexual Books reads, reviews, and talks about bisexual authors, stories, and characters.

Just as there is no one bisexual experience, there is no one bisexual literary canon; therefore, We promote the intersectional analysis of texts, Specifically with respect to people in marginalized communities

We do this to connect bisexual people to awesome bisexual stories,
Raise awareness about negative tropes, stereotypes, and clichés,
Let publishers know that bisexual books have an audience, and
Create a place where readers can discover and share quality bisexual literature.

AUTHORS AND PUBLISHERS If you are interested in having the Bisexual Books blogging team review your book, please read our guidelines here.
